Why We Love This

The Ultra is a full wrap to ensure coverage even if they have an extra hard way of twisting while pushing off the ground. It can also be used for horses with arthritic hocks to prevent chill. The thin neoprene and double layer of fleece make a very comfortable but tough boot that can be worn full-time for those horses with deep chronic sores.
Favorite Features
  • Effective against most hock sores
  • Great for horses with arthritic hocks to prevent chill
  • Thin neoprene and double layer of fleece for added comfort
  • Safe to be worn full-time

At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Hock Shield Ultra is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hock Shields Love these hock shields. Easy to put on and take off, easy to clean, and they really do protect the hocks. The abrasions on my horse’s hocks are healing up nicely and almost gone. I did get a second pair to use, while the other pair was being cleaned. I hand washed and line dried the shields, although they are machine washable and drier safe according to the web site of the company who makes these. They do get “grungy” especially when applying meds on the open sores. The hock shields stayed on, no twisting or turning, and was left on 7x24. Do follow the instructions and check the shields daily for irritation or tightness. Highly recommend.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't stay on I purchased these for my fine-boned Icelandic mare, but they have come off every night and ended up trampled in the mud or hanging on her foot like a bell boot. I really wanted these to work. I put them on just before bedtime in her stall but every morning they are in the mud of her small adjacent turnout. I tried trimming them, as per the directions, but still no go. I really wanted these to work, but I'm going to now try the old popular (and cheaper) method of duct tape or Flexicon over a small pad globbed with gall salve.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these hock boots My poor old guy is rocking on his hock to get up after bedtime. These boots are wonderful his sores are gone. I put them on at night and take them off before I let him out in the pasture. Easy to clean . I tired think bedding and he still got sores..these worked !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice ! My pony has never had on hock boots before, but he took to these rather well. He also looks very comfortable in them.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had High Hopes Sizing is confusing if your horse’s hock are 15”. That is their cutoff for deciding regular or large. I erred on the large side. They stayed on for at least 4 hrs that I know of but both were on the ground by the next morning. One velcro strap had its stitching unraveled after that first night, too. I applied them a second night, tighter. They still fell off. They do appear to have a cleaver design. I wish they had worked better for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!! All my gelding hock sores are gone! His hicks look awesome
    Date published: 2018-06-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from sores nearly all gone after a few weeks My horse has had more and more hock sores over the past few months. She lives in an in/out stall and paddock. She mostly rolls and lies down in the paddock which is sandy and has a rocky base. As fly season has approached I have been very frustrated with this problem. I have been using the pastern shields from the same company with really good results so I tried the hock shields. The sores are almost fully healed now. Just one setback when she rolled without them on. She was wet from bathing and I turned my back for that one minute! One boot fell down once but for the most part they stay in place perfectly and I leave them on all the time. I recommend these boots as well as the pastern ones. I predict a 6 month lifespan for these products with full time use. (I use the front ones on 2 horses). Not cheap but if you do the math it is probably cheaper than most of your horse related expenses. Much better than the price of treating infections for sure.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent features Been using these a month, they stay on very well, although they’ve already worn holes in them at the point of the hock, but the hock sores are nearly healed
    Date published: 2018-05-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I was tentative to order these as I was sure they would not stay put. I have been very pleased that they do stay on better than I could have imagined! They are really helping my horse's hock sores heal up. We live where the ground is quite abrasive and he is "tender skinned"!
    Date published: 2018-05-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These work! Just bought my second pair of these. They work very well and stay on even during kicking, unlike others I've tried. I also like that the fabric is breathable & so much cooler than neoprene. One caution: follow package instructions not to over-tighten. They don't need to be tight to stay in place.
